Friendship & Knitting!

For several weeks now I have been taking early morning walks with my dear friend Bonnie. 
How rejuvenating a walk is and puts a kick in my step for the rest of the day!
Bonnie and I decided to take a knitting class and learned how to make these pretty scarfs. 
Today was our first day and this is the beginning of my scarf.
 I plan on making more for Christmas this year!
I only knew how to crochet but today I learned to knit!
This is an amazing yarn from Universal Yarn. This is Rozetti~Tundra Glitz
You can check out the wedsite here.
I LOVE the ruffles you can make with this looped yarn!
I had to snack on some Mary Jane's, (my name). 
When I was a little girl I thought these candies were made in honor of me! LOL!
I love using these smooth wooden knitting needles.
This is the scarf I am going to make next! So pretty and lacy.
You can find this yarn called Opus hereThey provide a FREE pattern for it too!
Have a wonderful day and share some time with a friend! 
You never know what you might end up doing together...knitting?

A Sister Gathering!


There is just a little left of summer but with the heat that has come our way, I think it will be here for awhile! 
So with that, hence this post "A Sister Gathering"!
~
I have a very dear friend that many of you know, June from Laughing With Angels...Yes, sweet June. She is a woman with a loving heart, tender spirit and a angel here on earth! When you visit her blog, you will feel welcomed and at peace.  
June takes the most beautiful photos and captures beauty in everything! I just love her!

June knows how to have fun too! With her permission she is letting me share some "sister time" she had up at her little cabin!
She and her sisters spent a few days "glamping"! Wow, talking about the comforts of home! 
Isn't her cabin the sweetest ever?! June knows how to make a house (cabin) a home wherever she is.
Between the cabin and camper, she made this cozy spot for lots of girl time. I don't think I would want to go home!
It's all in the details!
A peek into the camper.
I love how she covered the manufactures valence and added her sweet touches...more on her blog!
Nothing like a sister time fix.
I LOVE these pajama bottom's she made for summer nights! Look at the darling ruffles! I want to make some. 
She has a beautiful craft room her husband built her. A must see! Just heavenly!
Please make a visit over to June's blog. You will learn why she named it "Laughing With Angels".
Oh, what a wonderful world this is!
~Thank you June. xox

Journal Making!

Time sure moves swiftly when summer is here!
It's been a busy summer with family and friends. Fun, fun!
This week I was able to squeeze some craft time in to make a few journals for my 
Etsy shops Sassy Sadie Lee and Beehive Cottage!
I added vintage teaspoons to the recipe journals!

And clothespins to some sewing and quilting journals.
